    well since that describes me, ill tell you what i have done to my hair. i have medium brown hair naturally, and i get 2-tone highlights--a gold color and a honey brown color. looks natural but noticeable and i get compliments on my hair a lot. ive gone blonder before, and it's just too much maintenance and looks too fake on me.

    I was going to say it would look pretty if you did a color that was close to your eye color and since your eyes have different colors in them (maybe gold, chestnut, coffee etc..) it would look good to put those colors in your hair. Sort of the same idea that Shayna had. Also I think that purple with blue streaks is beautiful, but it borders on punk, but not really if you're totally well groomed since most punks aren't. Streaks are beautiful when they're done really well no matter what color.

    Well, my sister has pale skin and brown eyes, and is a natural blonde. She's really the only person I've ever seen who has naturally dark eyes and light hair/skin. It's beautiful though...sort of exotic. It's a very soft, medium blonde. I'd go with a look like that!

    My sister in law has natural platnum blonde hair and brown eyes, I think it looks so pretty.
    She wishes she had blue eyes to go with her blonde hair, but then she wouldn't stand out. But she's not very pale.
    I think chestnut or amber highlites would look pretty.The highlites would probably be better to maintain. Or reddish highlites? Just make sure you have a professional do it, you don't want your hair to get to brittle from to long of a processing, or to strong of a bleach solution.

    I agree with the multiple tone idea. A medium warm brown base with some caramel and blonde highlights.

    I'm a red-head with green eyes, but had a friend with what you are describing. She was a dark red head, and looked, well, I was jealous..she was natural. She had the dark auburn hair that I wanted....sigh...

    I have fair skin, brown eyes, and brunette hair. The hair color that looks best on me is to keep my dark brown hair, but have some dark reddish or chestnut highlights put in it, just to make it look more multi-tonal rather than flat dark brown looking. You want to stay away from lighter highlights...it will look fakey. Let us know what you decide to do.

    Thanks everyone
    Highlites do seem like the way to go, maybe it can look more blended in when it grows out.
    The chestnut high lites would be pretty.

    I'm a redhead with very dark brown eyes and I always like the way my hair matches my eyes when it's wet. It's a dark brown and almost a chestnut color when it's wet. After it dries, it comes back to it's red color that I've had since I was born. I've considered coloring it, but I'd be afraid I'd never get my red hair back and that's one thing everyone knows me for.

    Rachel,
    If you change the color it's not going to permanently take your natural color away.
    You just have to wait til your natural color grows back out, which may take a while.
    You may be able make it appear darker without having to color it, by applying a lite gel to give it that slightly wet darker look all day. Or maybe even a serum oil for hair, usually used to keep frizz away may help.
